  • Trey Gowdy brings 'zeal for the truth' as head of House's Benghazi panel

    Rep. Trey Gowdy's rise from obscure South Carolina backbencher to chairman of the House's new special Benghazi committee took a quantum leap last October, when he stole the show at an otherwise mundane Republican news conference about the terrorist attacks. While only in his second term, the conservative Gowdy rushed to the podium and — with the conviction of a preacher and the erudition of a prosecutor — launched into a passionate yet disciplined plea for "justice" that mesmerized those watching, including his GOP colleagues on the dais. "No one has been arrested, no one has been prosecuted, no one...

    Tonight Megyn Kelly asked Trey Gowdy if there would be an equal number of Democrats and Republicans on the committee. He said "No Maam. Elections Have Consequences" Bahahaha!!! He also threatened Hillary with jail if she refused to comply with a subpoena.

    Good luck with that. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi faces pressure from all sides in regard to the newly-launched select committee to investigate Benghazi. Participating would legitimize the results, while boycotting it might open up Democrats to attacks on their concern for diplomatic personnel abroad, four of whom were killed in the attack on September 11, 2012, and leave administration officials no way to set the narrative through the friendly questioning of Democrats on the panel during public hearings. Pelosi hedged in the direction of participation by demanding an equal number of seats on the committee:

    American Thinker ^ | May 4, 2014 | Thomas Lifson
    There is a lot more to come on the Benghazi cover-up, and it could well lead to criminal charges for withholding subpoenaed evidence. Trey Gowdy, an experienced prosecutor who will head the House Select Committee, has gone on the record (on Greta van Susteren’s FNC program of the same name) as having more evidence of a cover-up. ... The person who should worry most is former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. For example, until now we have seen zero documentation to explain how Clinton out of the blue concocted the statement she issued on the evening of the attacks, which...
  • Trey Gowdy Claims Evidence Of ‘A Systematic, Intentional Decision To Withhold Documents From

    Daily Caller ^ | 5/2/14 | Brendan Bordelon
    South Carolina Republican congressman Trey Gowdy claimed he has evidence of “a systematic, intentional decision to withhold certain documents from Congress” about the Benghazi attacks and alleged White House cover-up. Gowdy spoke with Fox News’ Greta van Susteren about Speaker of the House John Boehner’s Friday decision to form a select committee on Benghazi. The congressman explained that the committee will allow a more complete investigation into the issue, unburdened by the jurisdictional restraints that often plague other committees. “If you want to have Greg Hicks and the station chief from Tripoli and Hillary Clinton all sitting at the same...

    Today Speaker of the House John Boehner announced he will finally bring to the House floor a vote on H.Res 36 which would establish a Select Committee, with subpoena powers, to investigate the Benghazi incident. We should all applaud the efforts and diligence of Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va) for his resolve in gaining some 190 co-sponsor signatures for this legislation. It’s obvious, with the recent revelations from the lawsuit brought about by citizen watchdog group Judicial Watch, that the Obama administration had little to no respect for the House Committee hearing process. Their continuing supply of heavily redacted emails is...

    Earlier this week, Sen. Jeff Sessions said that the president was deliberately dismantling our law enforcement system. Megyn Kelly of Fox News asked Rep. Gowdy about that. Rep. Trey Gowdy, a former prosecutor, agrees with Sen. Sessions that the president is systematically dismantling the nation’s laws, but he believes it is to win elections not to pursue an agenda. They [the administration] do however fundamentally view their role differently, he added. Attorney General Eric Holder recently claimed that illegal immigration is a civil right, if that is so, Gowdy says, that is like saying you and I have the right...

Can you imagine a fact pattern where somebody takes the stand and says, ‘I didn’t rob the bank. But I’m not gonna answer why my fingerprints are on the demand note.

    House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa said embattled IRS official Lois Lerner waived her Fifth Amendment rights and will be hauled back to appear before his panel again. The California Republican said Lerner’s Fifth Amendment right to avoid self-incrimination was voided when she gave an opening statement this morning denying any wrongdoing and professing pride in her government service. “When I asked her her questions from the very beginning, I did so so she could assert her rights prior to any statement,” Issa told POLITICO. “She chose not to do so — so she waived.” Lerner triggered...

While coastal snobs may consider him a “hick” or a “hilbilly,” Gowdy is all brains. Unlike some politicians, he has actually in his lifetime held gainful and meaningful employment.

    The roommates crossed paths near the bathroom door at 5 in the morning. In the Monday darkness, another school week at Virginia Tech was about to begin. Karan Grewal had pulled an all-nighter to finish his accounting paper. His eyes were bleary as he saw Cho Seung Hui, in boxer shorts and T-shirt, moving around him to get into the bathroom. No words were exchanged, but that is how it always was with Cho, the silent stranger among six guys in Suite 2121 of Harper Hall. Cho, or Seung as his suitemates called him, never looked you in the eye,...

    AUSTIN — A University of Texas student who called 911 to report that someone was trying to break into his apartment was found fatally wounded, Austin police said. William Ehrhardt III, 22, was pronounced dead at Brackenridge Hospital Tuesday morning, the Austin American-Statesman reported in its online edition. Police said Ehrhardt called 911 Monday night and said the burglar had apparently left. Officers were responding to his call when they received a second 911 call about a possible shooting, police said. Police believe Ehrhardt was a target because the killer or killers were in his apartment for a few seconds....

    FRANKFORT A politician from Kentucky's most populous county and a northern Kentucky newcomer will square off at next week's polls, hoping to win the secretary of state's seat. Trey Grayson of Kenton County is the Republican candidate; Russ Maple of Louisville is the Democratic candidate. Each have campaigned on election reform issues and e-commerce changes in the secretary's office — the state's chief of election officer and chairman of the elections board who maintains business and incorporation records. "One of the big issues, in the elections area, is trying to address fraud," said Grayson, an attorney and business consultant making...

  • Russ Maple -- criminally investigated by the FBI

    Russ Maple seeks the office of Secretary of State in Kentucky. Among the office's most important duties is being the Chief Elections Officer. In the 2000 election, we learned just how important this office can truly be in a serious situation. One of many marks against him is his reputation for shaking down campaign contributors while on Fiscal Court in Jefferson County. Maple filed for Secretary of State more than two years before the filing deadline, collecting contributions into his Secretary of State account from those with business before the Fiscal Court. Excerpt from an article in the Courier-Journal:...

Paul Patton, both Democrats, had a profound effect on Trey Grayson's political life. Grayson grew up in Kenton County where Democrats controlled local offices. "When I was 18, I registered to vote as a Democrat so that I could vote in the primary," Grayson said. "But I always admired President Reagan and the elder President Bush. And I really knew I was a Republican because I believed in lower taxes, less regulation and less government."...

    LEXINGTON, Ky. - Richie Farmer's celebrity as a former University of Kentucky basketball player, and whether he is relying on it to be elected commissioner of agriculture, arose as an issue Monday night in a televised forum with his opponent, Alice Baesler. "This election is not a basketball game," said Baesler, who has a Kentucky basketball connection of her own - husband Scotty was a captain of the Wildcats - but also years of experience running a cattle and tobacco farm in Fayette County. "We need to take it off the basketball court and into the plowed field," Baesler told...
